Senator Rand Paul was not surprised at the content of thousands of Dr. Fauci’s emails obtained in a “Freedom of Information Act” request by BuzzFeed News and the Washington Post. He had the perfect response in reaction to the development.
He tweeted: “Told you. #firefauci.” And then added: “Can’t wait to see the media try to spin the Fauci FOIA emails.” Paul has been relentless in calling out Fauci for his flip-flopping concerning his stances on the pandemic. The trove of emails bolsters Paul’s accusations against Fauci but the media is still spinning him as a hero.
The 4,060 emails surfaced on Wednesday. They detailed a number of revelations concerning Dr. Fauci and the coronavirus, including his communications with Chinese Communist Party officials, a researcher who told him the virus might be engineered, and his advice against wearing masks.
